Graham Roberts says performance against Stoke was Tottenham's best for 20 years

Tottenham Hotspur overcame Stoke City earlier this week.

Former Tottenham Hotspur player Graham Roberts has been speaking to Sky Sports about Spurs’ recent victory against Stoke City.

Tottenham were eight points behind league leaders Leicester City heading into the match against the Potters. However there appeared to be no pressure on them as they ran out 4-0 victors with Harry Kane and Dele Alli both scoring braces.

The performance of the entire team was superb and Roberts has explained just what he thought of the showing, making a very bold claim in the process.

“The way we played the other night, it’s the best performance I’ve seen for 20-odd years,” Roberts told Sky Sports.

“It was brilliant. I thought every player was magnificent. I was disappointed it was only four, it could have been six or seven or eight.”

Roberts then went on to suggest that Tottenham are playing the best football of any side in the top flight right now.

“I think they are the only team playing like champions,” Roberts added. I think Leicester are just getting by. We’re there waiting to pounce.”

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino has put together a wonderful squad that mixes experience with some of the most exciting young players in England and they are still very much on course to finish the campaign on a high.

Next up for Spurs is a home match against West Bromwich Albion on Monday evening and another performance like the one against Stoke will certainly be a huge step in the right direction.
